It's 75 ohm, double screened, people in the know state copper screen and braid is best. I've been useing the cable with aluminium screen for years without any problems. Just make sure that there are no nicks in the plastic outer caseing and the ends are water/moisture proof. I suspect that if you were useing a long length ie 20m or so it may be better to use the cable with copper screens.
Just my opinions though.

The particular cable you link to is high loss and doesn't appear to be rated over 1000 Mhz, it also has a core of les than 1mm. Hang on for the WF125. :)
